Kiva Style: Former Tipi Residents Build a Rammed-Earth Home

Working with earth, wood, glass and crystals, Tom and Flame Lutes have created a truly sacred space in the Colorado high country.

Not ones to settle for off-the-shelf fixtures, Tom and Flame formed wall sconces with chicken wire, then extended the wall plaster (Structo-Lite) around the wire for a seamless look. They “dressed up” the sconces by embedding bits of turquoise in the wet plaster.
